Fuck you nvidia. Latest GEForce Experience update now wants you to login with your social media accounts or an nvidia account to 'save your settings' and doesn't give you an option to do anything else.
Manual driver updates from now then you shitbags!!!

Many rural places dont have it which must be a huge percentage of the UK, and even those that do unless its Virgin oversubscribed media will be just as crap as ADSL as they are miles away from the cabinet. Where i live which is only 2 miles north of Scarborough i have no mobile data and struggle to make a phone call. Unless you live in a really populated or built up area broadband and phone companies don't give a shit about you as its too expensive for them to sort it. I was told 4G would be the bollox and all the UK would be covered. All complete bollox. 'Sam Knows' always has been the best source of information for Broadband info.

If you knew how much I've signed off alone just for the vehicles to deal with getting fibre around the UK you would be amazed. This is not just a case of 'Dave the chap who digs up and lays some cable' I'm afraid chaps. If you live in a rural area, tough. It's your choice to live there.

Now move to a proper place in the UK and stop moaning :P

Does anyone offer Wimax?

My dad lives in the middle of nowhere and is lucky to have a phone line!

He used to have good mobile phone reception but over the years its become piss poor.

There was a company offering Wimax, they started out in Rural Ireland (ROI) and moved into NI.

Its great, I think he is getting over 3Mb down and up (must test it next time I am down) and as it doesn't use a phone line it is £20 per month and no download limits.
